Residents cope with gas prices - Erin Thompson, Pacific Daily News

"It's too expensive," Dededo resident Dennis Fejeran said while putting $20 worth of gas in his truck yesterday. The 18-year-old said he spends about $60 a week to fill up, and that only covers the commute between school and home.
"I'm a student at UOG, so I can't go out. It's just to and from school. That's it," said Fejeran. If the price of gas continues to rise, Fejeran said, he would consider biking or carpooling to cut down on the cost of gasoline. In the long term, however, Fejeran thinks Guam needs to come up with solutions to the high cost of energy. "Got to find other resources besides burning our own fossil fuels," he said.
